Why Berlin?

The Historic Need:

There are more displaced people in the world today than at any other time in the history of our planet. The primary reason we chose Berlin is because this is where refugees desire to be. Therefore, this is where we want to be. The numbers are staggering. Berlin has been flooded with desperate people fleeing atrocities that they will carry with them for the rest of their lives. War, famine, violence, and persecution are the narratives told by countless refugees who are simply seeking safety in and around Berlin. Our non-profit spent one year researching and discerning the best place to respond to this historic crisis and were compelled to move our Executive Director and his family to Berlin in 2018 to begin serving the refugee population as we have done in North Carolina. Berlin will be a launching point for us to bring teams to pour out love and hope to the millions of refugees who have made the perilous journey to Europe over the past few years.
